As per reports in July, Mr Kalanick had told companions he was “Steve Jobsing it”.
This is a reference to Mr Jobs being kicked out of Apple in 1985, just to triumphantly return as CEO a little more than 10 years after the fact.
The claim requests that three additional board seats at Uber, included by Mr Kalanick in June a year ago, be evacuated.

The organization is likewise being prosecuted without anyone else’s input driving firm Waymo, which has blamed Uber for taking parts of its self-driving auto innovation.
In an announcement, Mr Kalanick’s representative blamed Benchmark for “acting in its own best advantages in opposition to the interests of Uber”.
